The collection chronicles Orbisonrsquos work both as a solo artist and with supergroup Traveling Wilburys until his tragic death at the age of 52. The Ultimate Collection marks the first time ever that any Roy Orbison compilation album has incorporated tracks from all of the aforementioned sources. br br Royrsquos son, Alex Orbison, painstakingly selected songs that were most representational of his fatherrsquos vast catalog, which totals 27 studio albums, four live albums, and over 60 singles. Narrowing it down was no easy task. "It is a great honour for me and my brothers, Wesley and Roy Jr., to finally and definitively distill our father's entire career onto a single disc as best one can possibly do and, certainly, as never done before," said Alex. "It is the result of years of research, archiving and listening, and it is with supreme and heartfelt pleasure that we will be able to share it with the world." br span

Claudette is taken from the Black&White Night show,otherwise they are all studio recordings.
One minor gripe-the cover is just a darker version of the All Time Greatest Hits album-but the contents are impeccable.
Every member of the family deserves one!
each offering it's own reflection of the legendary 'Roy Orbison's' much loved releases, this release offers many of his great 60's
chart-successes including all three chart-toppers - 'Only The Lonely' (1960) - 'It's Over' (1964) and of course 'Pretty Woman' (also
1964) the latter of course re-surfacing as the title-track for the 'Richard Gere' / 'Julia Roberts' film of the same name (1990)
The album also includes a few tracks from his time with the 'Traveling Wilburys' - 'Not Alone Anymore' and 'Handle With Care'
(the latter a number '21' chart-entry from 1988) among other members of 'The Traveling Wilburys' included - Bob Dylan, Tom Petty,
Jeff Lynne and former fab-four member George Harrison.
Also among the tracks on-board 'You Got It' - 'She's A Mystery To Me' and 'I Drove All Night' songs that charted after 'Roy's' sad
passing late 1988 after suffering a heart-attack.
There are one or two early numbers i'd like to have seen included a among the track-listings such as 'The Crowd' and 'Borne On The
Wind' though it's nice to see album-tracks such as 'Love Hurts' included (many versions released by artists down the years, 'The Big O's
version always a firm favourite of mine)
I was privileged to have seen 'Roy' live at a local venue back in the early-mid 60's.....(sounded just as good live as on disc - a great talent)
This release a great reflection of his music down the years.....(includes small booklet)
This cd brings his hits from his various record labels together for the first time, so give your ears a treat and add this to your collection.
